Subject: Oxford Shakespeare Richard II
Just to report that the Oxford Shakespeare Richard II, edited by Anthony B. Dawson and Paul Yachnin, has just hit the streets. The preface announces that this edition is "the last of the Oxford series"—which may well come as a surprise to the General Editor, Stanley Wells, who assured me a few years ago that an edition of Edward III was underway (and Wikipedia archly states that "plans are afoot for the Arden Shakespeare and Oxford Shakespeare series to publish editions.")
This edition appears to be a slighter work than Charles R. Forker's Arden3 of 2002 (it is only half the length), and it may well suffer by comparison.
